Jets Beat: Expect '20 or 30' snaps for WR Percy Harvin

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jets beat writer Rich Cimini on the immediate impact of Percy Harvin: The Jets haven't revealed too much, as you'd expect, but I expect him to play a good chunk of the snaps on offense. Will he play 50-plus snaps? I doubt it, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's out there for 20 or 30. They will have a Percy package that will include his signature plays -- jet sweeps, bubble screens, etc. -- but I also think they will give him an opportunity to be a conventional wide receiver. This much we do know: He will return kickoffs and, possibly, punts. Harvin's arrival definitely adds intrigue to the season. Now we'll see if he's worth the hype. My gut tells me he won't make a significant impact. It's hard to integrate a new receiver into the offense without having had the benefit of training camp.

Fantasy Impact: 

We're not expecting much from Harvin in his first game with the Jets, but there's the chance that they force-feed him 10 touches and he pops one for a touchdown.
